(Brooklyn, NY) Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, all-girl Chasidic alternative-rock band Bulletproof Stockings are gearing up to drop their debut full length, "Homeland-Call-Stomp," later this December. The quartet consisting of Perl Wolfe (lead vocals/piano), Dalia Shusterman (drums/vocals), Elisheva Maister (cello) and Dana Pestun (violin) will also embark on a US tour including a record release show at Webster Hall on December 6th.
With features in various publications including The New Yorker, VICE, Entertainment Weekly, The Wall Street Journal and more already in their rearview, Bulletproof Stockings will look to spread their progressive message and eclectic rock stylings out to the world from their base in Crown Heights in Brooklyn, NY. Bold in their ideas and sound, but modest from their Chasidic background, the band seeks to empower women as proven last year when they defied naysayers and sold out Arlene’s Grocery with an all-female audience. The performance would serve as the basis of an episode of Oxygen’s Living Differently.
In an interview with Refinery29, Wolfe elaborates on the mitzvah of Kol Isha, which requires a man to refrain from listening to a woman who isn’t his family member sing, and how it relates to Bulletproof Stockings. “We can play wherever we want,” she asserts, “but women need a space to rock out. So, we're trying to create that. It's about sisterhood.”
Look for the first single premiere from Homeland-Call-Stomp soon with the group’s sound previously described by VICE as, “somewhere between Cat Power's "You Are Free" and Fiona Apple's When the Pawn...”
